So I got this in the mail today. Over a year ago some friends at our crossfit gym asked me if I wanted to join them at giving it a go to qualify as a team for regionals that is on the road to the #crossfitgames. As a result we worked so hard and ended up as the 6th fittest team in the #africaregion and spent a weekend in Spain competing as the first team from Turkey to go to a regional competition! Say what?! If it weren’t for the fact that I knew my other teammates were working so hard to do our best to qualify, this would not have happened. I am so thankful to so many who me encouraged along the way. I’m thankful for my health. Thankful for my teammates for some memories I will never forget. And I am so proud to be the 2017 fittest woman in Turkey. @crossfitgames@antrumcrossfit#teamantrum#crossfit
🥉192 kg (422 lbs) competition PR Clean and Jerk en route to a 3rd Place finish at the #2017 AO!
Never felt stronger! Snatches felt great, but out of position and it put me too far behind in the Clean and Jerk to go for big numbers. Another lesson in “earning your attempts”. I’ve won more than I’ve lost this way, even though it’s a tough pill to swallow!
Special thanks to my squad for the support and encouragement, my coaches @tottentraining and @bmcd83, and my fountain of youth provider @directperformancept .. turning 35 in 2 weeks and was in the best shape ever this weekend.
Onward! More work to be done!💪🏻

If you’ve been following me on IG Stories, you will have seen me enjoying Christmas lunch and having a few drinks on Saturday. I thought I would post this so you don’t misinterpret my Saturday night and use this as a reason to go wild.
It was interesting getting a few comments during the Christmas lunch “Ooh Jenny is here, we must stay on track” I’m surprised you’re eating all that food”
If I was prepping for a competition, I wouldn’t be eating freely. But Christmas is really not a good time to be prepping (hence why there are no competitions in December). It’s a time enjoy and spend time with family and friends.
Losing fat is not as intensive as competing, but you would still need to make an effort to track and be mindful about what you order. For example, instead of having the turkey with all the trimmings (difficult to figure out what you are eating) I would have gone for the steak and chips, which was much easier to guesstimate.
Because my current goal is to MAINTAIN, I simply focused on getting my four training sessions in, and staying on track on the other 5 days before the Saturday party.
A strategy that many of my clients are using is to stay on track on the regular days, and if there is a Christmas party, then simply enjoy the meal and have one or two drinks without tracking. The more parties in the same week, the more you will have to be mindful about what you eat/drink to be able maintain.
Just because it’s the festive season doesn’t, however mean you should go completely wild, especially if you want to maintain so you don’t have start one or two steps backwards in January.
One or two days of free eating really won’t do much, AS LONG as you get back on track for the remaining days. Overeating for a prolonged period of time is what causes weight gain. If you’ve been doing this since the beginning of Dec until Jan 1st, then yes, you will probably gain a few pounds. It’s important to know that a few pounds really isn’t a big deal either. Having a mental break can do wonders, gaining more than a few kilos is a bit excessive and irresponsible. We still have 7 days left. Be accountable and stay on track so you can enjoy Christmas! 👍🏼
“So many people have whined for years that the running shoe brands do not do research to back up the claims that they make for their shoes, yet when they do do it they whine that they don’t trust the research as it was done or funded by a running shoe company. To claim that the study should be dismissed due to the funding source is the same thing as alleging that the researchers faked the data, in which case, that is defamatory and you may want to find a good lawyer. Yes, industry-funded research is not without its problems. It is widely known that studies with negative results (eg drug trials) may not ever get published, therefore biasing the collective body of literature on a topic. There are strategies in place, such a clinical trial registries to deal with that. The way to assess industry-funded research is to focus on the methods and results and ask the hard questions of that. Look at things like subject selection, allocation, blinding of assessors etc. Does that stack up to scrutiny regardless of the funding source? What I do see as a big problem in this sort of research is the spin on the results in the introduction and discussion sections if things are not quite as the funder would like. It is almost as they make excuses for the results not turning out how the funder would have liked. That is why you need to see past the spin and look as what and how the study was done.” -Craig Payne. Some tips on reading and interpreting studies
